Tales of Mexico

Natalia Beristáin, Carlos Bolado, and others

Mexico, 2016, 118 minutes

This history of the residents of a glittering Belle Epoque home in Mexico City begins on the eve of the Mexican Revolution and ends in the present day. Told in eight chapters, the tales deftly move through ordinary lives in 100 years of despots and dictators, rebels and revolutionaries. The 1968 protests and the infamous Tlatelolco massacre, the 1985 earthquake, and the devastating drug wars, are folded into the mix. Beginning as the home of a wealthy upper crust family, the house deteriorates into a series of seedy small rooms to rent, then an abandoned ruin, and finally is resurrected as a communal home for young people trying to escape drug gang life. The temptation to find a message in the house’s denouement is irresistible.—Miguel Pendás
